The delegation was accompanied by staff members of the Chinese embassy in Azerbaijan, Su Tsin and Xie Yilin.
The guests were interested in the general educational format and educational system of the school. They asked questions about the teaching of sports and culture at the school and toured the school's sports complex. They viewed the exhibits of the Nailekhanim Museum, which was created to perpetuate the memory of Nailekhanim Isayeva, who was the co-founder of the "Dunya" school.
Then the guests took part in a musical-artistic event prepared by the teachers and students of the IB section of the school in the school's "Incichichayi" hall. Prof. Acad. Hamlet Isakhanli, founder of Khazar University, chairman of the Board of Directors and Trustees, greeted the guests and gave general information about the school. Zhang Jiaming, vice chairman of the Beijing People's Political Consultative Conference made a speech and expressed his good impression about the school.
Following the visit, Zhang Jiaming, the head of the delegation, and deputy chairman of the Beijing People's Political Consultative Conference, sent a letter of appreciation to Khazar University.
I would like to inform you that our delegation, which has successfully concluded its official visit to Azerbaijan, has returned to Beijing. During our visit to the “Dunya School” affiliated with Khazar University, you, along with with Deputy Director on Organizational Affairs of Dunya IB school Rashid Jafarov, graciously accompanied our delegation. I extend my heartfelt appreciation to you and your team for the attention and respect shown.
Prior to our meeting, we engaged in in-depth discussions with you. I observed the teaching processes of culture, sports, and other subjects at your educational institution. Subsequently, our conversation covered the principles of education, the curriculum, and the physical and psychological preparation of students, leading to significant agreements. The artistic performances reflecting shared elements of Chinese and Azerbaijani cultures, skilfully presented by the school staff, were particularly pleasing to me and our delegation.
I believe that this visit will significantly contribute to mutual educational exchanges between Baku and Beijing, laying a strong foundation for establishing friendly relations between your school and Beijing schools. Please consider visiting Beijing at a time convenient for you! Wishing you and your team continued good health and greater success in your future endeavours!
